Humanity's complex relationship with technology spirals out of control in this first book of an all-new series from "the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction" (Ken Follett).

"How far 'space opera' has come! The Old Masters of sci-fi would admire the scope and sweep of Salvation." - The Wall Street Journal


In the year 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation - including starships - virtually obsolete. Every place on Earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. All seems wonderful - until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly located world eighty-nine light-years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying. To assess the potential of the threat, a high-powered team is dispatched to investigate. But one of them may not be all they seem. . . .

Bursting with tension and big ideas, Peter F. Hamilton's Salvation is the first book of an all-new series that highlights the inventiveness of an author at the top of his game.

Praise for Salvation


"[A] vast, intricate sci-fi showstopper . . . The journey grips just as hard as the reveal." - Daily Mail (U.K.)

"Exciting, wildly imaginative and quite possibly Hamilton's best book to date." - SFX

"Dynamic, multifaceted characters, strong mind-expanding concepts, and impressive flair for language [make Salvation a] rare celestial event. . . . One of Britain's bestselling sci-fi authors has launched an addictive new book as the initial stage of what is sure to be an intriguing new series called the Salvation Sequence." - SyFyWire

"Peter Hamilton just keeps getting better and better with each book, more assured and more craftsmanly adroit, and more inventive. [Salvation is] a bravura performance from start to finish. . . . Hamilton is juggling chainsaws while simultaneously doing needlepoint over a shark tank. It's a virtuoso treat, and I for one can hardly wait for Salvation Lost." - Paul Di Filippo, Locus

"Peter F. Hamilton is known as one of the world's greatest sci-fi writers for a reason. . . . Salvation is well worth the effort and a great introduction to some good old-fashioned space opera." - Fantasy Book Review

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"No one offers action-packed, meticulous, suspenseful, and consistent high-tech futures better than Peter Hamilton, and Salvation cranks all of that up five notches." - David Brin

"Hamilton's scope of imagination is bigger and more creative than that of any author I've ever read and Salvation is the best book yet." - James Dashner

"A gripping novel from one of the modern masters, Salvation is a must-read not just for sci-fi fans but for anyone who loves a great story well told." - Jason M Hough

"Peter F. Hamilton smashes through the crazy battlefield of space opera like a giant all-conquering war-robot. His newest is loud, proud, and beyond epic. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need Salvation, my friend. Everyone needs salvation." - Ian McDonald

"Hamilton knows how to build a world, and he’s one of the best in the field at imagining complex societies. Just as important, though, he knows how to populate his future environments with real-seeming people whose lives extend beyond the page. Salvation is a twisty and hugely satisfying SF thriller that opens a portal on a new and exciting series." - Alastair Reynolds
